Emergency Water Usage Restrictions Due to Sustained High-Demand Levels

medford water commission

With recent weather conditions and fire activity, water system demand has spiked, nearing the total system production capacity of both of Medford Water Commission’s sources, Big Butte Springs and the Rogue River. To preserve water for fire emergencies and necessary domestic use, the Commission finds it necessary to immediately restrict certain non-essential water uses. These restrictions are mandatory and will remain in place until demand levels come down, the system can keep pace, and reservoirs can remain full. The Commission will rely on the support and cooperation of customers in immediately restricting usage to ensure that an adequate supply of water is available for public health and safety during this time. The full details are attached.
